Blogging you Doo Dah Nogging!

CowTV captures the “Libery & Lunacy” of the 25th Annual Doo Dah Parade.


Although it was wet, there was a GREAT turn-out of participants and spectators - all they had to do was show up!  Once again, hundreds of people lined the parade route with beverages and umbrellas in hand.  A few of the “regulars” made their way back again such as The Marching Fidel’s, Terror Park, The Doo Dah Virgin, the Rocky Horror Picture Show - AND - dare we leave out Batman!  New to the scene this year were the “couple”(?) of a crime-fighting Dynamic Duo (their presence really “queered it up”).  Ever-present political messages dotted the parade route - from gas prices to a John McCain satire.  Finally, of course, it just wouldn’t be the Doo Dah Parade without the presence of Ms. Doo Dah herself - looking ever-so ravishing - and starting the whole event off!  She was accompanied with the “Less Than Grand Marshall” former Columbus Mayor “Buck” Reinhart.  “Buck” was in great spirits (or maybe sipping “great spirits”) for the parade!  Eventually, the rain stopped - didn’t matter - the Doo Dah Parade went off as planned and the rain date of July 3rd was not needed.  A great time as always, the Doo Dah Parade is another example of what makes Columbus - and it’s residents - very special!


If you missed it this year - HAVE NO FEAR!  CowTV is pleased to bring you this installment where we get up-close and a bit personal with parade participants.  A second offering is soon to come that will show an abbreviated version of the entire parade.  Finally, copies of the footage will be made available with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the Doo Dah Parade organizers - to help pay for next years’ fun!


Enjoy!  as always, leave us your feedback!

Congratulations on another doo-dah parade.  I have taken my son to the parade since he was 2 years old and today marked our 5th.  He is now 8.  Our favorite part of the parade has always been the moment when Batman gets out of the Batmobile and shakes my son’s hand.  We would love to know who batman is, and if he is around Columbus as batman in any other venues.  Do you know how I could find this out?


Thanks again for another memorable 4th of July.  It has been a real highpoint of our summers together for 5 years and we will always have great memories of the 4th thanks to the parade.  Thank you.
